Our Open day event gives a little more insight into how the course runs and what the course covers:

We don't impose any minimum or maximum ages on our learners as we recognise that every learner is an individual and is on their own unique learning journey. We believe, that their adult facilitator is the best person to judge whether a learner is ready for a particular course, but to enable you to make this decision we provide the first workbook, free for you to try.

Please email us to request a free workbook, at technologytriumphs@outlook.com 

We are also happy to advise you with this decision so do reach out to us if you would like our guidance on this.

As part of your Induction pack, your learner will receive a free apron to use within their course, but aside from this we have designed the courses to be as affordable as possible. The following is not an exhaustive list, but does highlight the main costs associated with the course.

For further information or to ask any questions please feel free to reach out to us, in the assurance that you are speaking to another fellow home edder.
